Impacts of a Poor Executive Search Hire

Finding the right executive candidate is easier said than done and the cost of recruiting the wrong executive into your organization can have major impacts across the board.

  • The hiring manager’s reputation and confidence can be negatively affected.
  • Overall productivity can plummet with poor leadership or a mismatch of culture.
  • Negative press to clients, employees, and the external marketplace.
  • Effects of decisions made by the hire during their time with the organization.
  • The most tangible impact, however, is the dollar-for-dollar cost.
  • Research shows that organizations spend up to 2.5 times the hire’s salary if they depart in the first six months!

5 Reasons to Work with an External Executive Search and Placement Partner  



Working with a top executive search firm like TrainingFolks can bring significant benefits to your learning department and organization. 

Access to Quality Network of Professionals
When you’re trying to fill a high-profile position, the hardest part is finding a strong pool of potential candidates to talk to. Job sites and LinkedIn will help but only take you as far as the applications you receive. Working with TrainingFolks increases your pool of talent giving you access to a much larger number of professionals that meet the criteria for the job.

Maintain Relationships with Stakeholders
Headhunting is a huge benefit that an executive search partner can offer and something you may not be comfortable doing internally. Our recruitment team can approach star players in the industry that you may not want to contact internally.

Screening Process
As a leading corporate training company with over 20 years of experience, our team knows what to look for in industry-leading resumes.  Hard skills, soft skills as well as strong communication and presentation skills are all part of the screening process. Once they have a pool in mind, they take the time to perfect their profiles as well as to conduct preliminary screening calls and interviews. What you’re presented with at the end are truly Best-Fit matches to consider moving through your internal process.

Maintain Discretion
Depending on the role that you’re filling, you may not want to broadcast it in the general marketplace. In addition, if you don’t want to let the internal team know that there may be a shift in leadership then maintaining discretion as you perform your executive search is paramount. Control who knows about your search requirements when working with TrainingFolks.

Reduce Bias
With a high-profile position like VP or Director, there may be an internal bias that may affect the process of internally sourcing the right candidate. Working with a partner ensures an unbiased group of Best-Fit individuals.
